Black and Latinx students have long suffered harsher disciplinary actions in schools than their white peers, fueling the school-to-prison pipeline. Many schools are taking steps to curtail these well-documented disparities by moving away from punitive discipline policies in favor of restorative justice practices. Restorative practices shift a school’s response to conflict from punishment and suspensions to an inclusive model of repairing harm and healing. This practice has proven to reduce suspensions, reduce disproportionality among marginalized student populations and increase student leadership and ownership of their school’s culture. See the resources below for organizations that support school communities doing this work.
